that former editors like rebecca brooks work remains chief executive of the parent company, must have sanctioned the hacking. something she always denied. she's a close friend with prime minister david cameron, and an awkward fact, but that didn't stop him from saying this this government is making sure the fact that the public, murder victims, terror victims who had their phones hacked is disgraceful. >> reporter: one thing that went wrong for the prime minister was the decision to hire this man as communications guru, andy coulson is a former news of the world editor who lost his job at number 10 and may now be facing criminal charges. this man's son died in a terrorist attack and thinks sensitive cell phone messages were accessed by coulson's reporters. >> the thought that somebody may have been listening to me begging for david to phone home was very difficult. i thought we were in a dire place, i didn't think anybody could make it darker. >> reporter: for rupp pert murdoch the dramatic decision to close "news of the world" doesn't mean the scandal is over. there is still a police

hear from her. why are we hearing from her now? >> reporter: well, i think the government here, brooke, is trying to give a sort of pr push as it were, going to selected broadcasters, talking to selected audience, in this case, the french public, you know, the gadhafi government is up in arms about the french government admitting that they are dropping weapons to rebels southwest of the capital here, and certainly, brooke, they're trying to get across the message that gadhafi is strong and he's not going anywhere. one important thing that ayesha gadhafi said is that the family is tightly knit. certainly in the early days of the conflict there were word and rumors whether the family would split and sort of potentially take over at the expense of mow har moammar gadhafi. we just got back from the green square, certainly the biggest crowd we've seen here in tripoli for some time, and moammar gadhafi got on the airwaves with a message, he effectivity threatened revenge on nato countries and likened the revenge of the libyan people to a swarm. >> not only were we hearing from his daughter,

the government shutdown during the mid-90s? >> brooke, it would be much worse. a government shutdown is one thing. even in the government shutdown vital government services will continue. people got medicare checks and medicaid, social security, unemployment checks. the government continued to pay its creditors what was due. but if the debt ceiling is not raised next week, none of that happens. government simply doesn't have any money to pay medicare, medicaid, social security, unemployment insurance, nor can it pay its creditors. it has a limited amount of money but that amount of money continues to dwindle as it tries to pay off everybody it owes. that's why interest rates will go up. everybody who owes money or the government owes money to, including international lenders, are going to get nervous. >> you're saying the situation would be worse come next week. i've also done reading here. you say the budget deficit isn't our biggest problem, it's joblessness. let me ask you this, what does washington need to do, robert reich with regard to the debt ceiling, negotiations, that would create a bet

, from james murdoch and rebecca brookibroo -- rebekah brooks, they sat there hour after hour, taking the questions in good humor. and that gives them credit to their benefit, that they did go through this process. ultimately, though, tonight, as rupert murdoch did say he doesn't take responsibility for what took place although he will have to be the man that sorts it out. >> are you responsible for this whole fiasco? >> no. >> who are responsible? >> the people i trusted to run it and then maybe the people they trusted. >> can you name people? >> i worked with mr. hinton for 52 years and i would trust him with my life. >> what i think is interesting in that exchange, the normal phraseology for people doing that is, i was not to blame, but i take responsibility. the buck stops here. and what we didn't get there was that phraseology or some version thereof. we also finally, wolf, we did get later on in his final statement the hacking was wrong, the payments to the police were wrong, no excuses. >> and there was an incident there at one point where an intruder just showed up with some s

that murdoch exec rebecca brooks was arrested. he was asked to show up for questioning. the next thing you know she was arrested. tell us more about that. >> that's right. these are basically two strands of the same scandal that are happening. in her case, in rebecca brook's case, she had an appointment to see the police today in the afternoon. she walked in and was apparently arrested in connection with the investigations not just of the phone hacking allegations, but into investigations of paying out police for information. so we have -- as far as we understand it, rebecca brooks is still being questioned almost for seven hours now. and we haven't heard about her release. we're still waiting to hear more from police. >> so is there a feeling this is just kind of the tip of the iceberg as it pertains to arrests, questioning, resignations? >> definitely. it certainly shows that the scandal is growing wider and wider involving more officials, more higher ups. i should point out, rebecca brooks's arrest is the most high-profile arrest. and with each arrest it has gotten closer and closer to the m
today. rebekah brooks, former editor of news of the world testified. she was arrested sunday amid allegations that the tabloid was paying off police. she this wasn't the first time she was questioned. police payoffs have come up time and time again over the years. i'll play her testimony from today in a moment, but let's look back at what she had to say back in 2003. >> can i just ask of whether you ever pay the police? >> excuse me? >> do you ever pay the police for information? >> we have paid the police for information in the past. >> and will you do it in the future? >> it depends on -- >> we operate within the code and within the law. there is a clear public interest, and same holds for private detectives, subterfuge, whatever you want to talk about. >> it's illegal. >> no, no, no. as i said, within the law. >> over the years, brooks has tried to back away from that testimony. but it came up again today when the former editor was asked to clarify exactly what she meant by the statement. here is what she had to say. >> i can say that it -- i have never paid a policeman myself,
his first in command, rebecca brook, was sort of toeing the appropriate line. so whether there's a cover-up there that reaches the highest levels of newscorp or whether it's just the head of a company where there are problems and he's trying to fix them as best he can, i guess we'll -- we may find out. we may not find out. >> some people seem to feel it's really that connection between the rebecca brook, the "news of the world" editor, formerly, and the power that she really had in politics. and david cameron's former assistant also having worked over at the paper. that there just seems to be this coziness that is making people uncomfortable. >> well, i mean, we have the same thing in washington frankly. there's been a lot of coziness over the years. the white house press corps and the -- and government at all levels. i think that's a problem when people live and work and depend on each other for their livelihood. as the press and powerful people do. but, you know, i think murdoch is probably -- may not be the person this hits. i mean, i wonder if there's -- if there's an equiv
